Start your time traveling journey into the secrets of Mdina. Proudly standing on one of the highest plateaus on the island featuring breathtaking views of the crystal-blue Mediterranean. Given the 14 different cultures that have dominated the city throughout the centuries, Mdina has a lot that’s waiting to be uncovered by you and your kids! In fact, it was once named: Maleth (Pheonician), then Melite (Roman), after that Medina (Arabic), then Citta Notabile (Spanish) and also Citta Vecchia (Knights Period). What a place! Nowadays it is known as the ‘Silent City’ because of its quiet and narrow streets that give off a quaint, yet very homely atmosphere.
Next, you will visit Valletta, the present Capital of Malta! Stroll through its busy vibrant streets and watch a short movie introducing you and your kids to this interesting island and its history. Discover its countless wonders like the Upper Barracca Gardens – offering stunning views of the bay, St. John’s Co-Cathedral and the famous paintings by the Italian artist Caravaggio and the Magisterial Palace. Learn everything about the founder of Valletta, the Knights of St. John and what happened to them.
Valletta, not only the capital of Malta but also the European Capital City of Culture in 2018, is a stunning open-air museum. This town is a living experience of Baroque architecture, a town created by the Knights of St John nearly five centuries ago! Thanks to its strategic location in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Valletta has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists, poets and many other important people throughout the centuries that have molded and shaped the city into the great city it is today!
Let your family be enchanted by the quaint little cafés and wine bars Malta offers. Open Air concerts, fairs, the daily hustle bustle of the friendly inhabitants of this island are some of the things that make the island so great! End the tour in beauty by taking a stunning snapshot of Malta’s Grand Harbour, frequently stated as one of the most beautiful ones in the Mediterranean!
